West Ham accept they face losing Declan Rice in 2023.
Football Insider says sources have claimed that West Ham expect to lose Rice in the summer to a club that can offer Champions League football.
He is understood to have rejected multiple new contract offers from his current club, including one with wages of around £200,000 per week.
Rice's current deal runs until 2024, but the Hammers could look to make a sizable profit on his sale in the summer, before he has the opportunity to run his contract down.
With scouts understood to already be in Qatar to monitor the progress of other Liverpool midfield target Jude Bellingham they will have the opportunity to keep a watchful eye on England counterpart Rice at the same time.
